Camp David Accords /Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty

by WikiPeace editor  21.01.2013 The Accords were signed by Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin on 17 September 1978, following thirteen days of secret negotiations at Camp David, USA. They included two agreements: A Framework for Peace in the Middle East, proposing autonomy for the Palestinians, and A Framework for the Conclusion of a Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel, later finalized in the signing of a peace treaty in  26 March 1979. In the peace treaty Israel agreed to withdraw from the Sinai peninsula, which remains under Egyptian control and is demilitarized. Israel's access to its oil supply is guaranteed, and diplomatic relations were to be normalized. The Accords snd Peace Treaty were perceived by the Palestinian public as a betrayal of their cause as they did not include a Palestinian state or homeland.

it's not the West Bank'. Every time any Jew whether in the diaprosa or in Israel or any Gentile Friend of Zion uses that term, I wince, for they are using the language of the enemy: an invented toponym that was cooked up after 1967. BTW The term Palestine' is similar, though older: it too was cooked up and applied by a mortal enemy, pagan Rome, in AD 135; anyone who refers to Palestine' when talking about, say, the time of Christ, or even earlier, is committing a gross anachronism [so, pastors who talk about Jesus being 'Palestinian' or being 'born in Palestine' should have scorn heaped upon their heads by the historically-aware; HE would have thought of himself as a Jew born in Judea and raised in Galilee, in the land of Israel, at that time under pagan Roman occupation]. So far as can be discovered, the invading and occupying Muslims never referred to the land of Canaan/ Holy Land/ Eretz Israel, as Palestine' nor seem to have thought of it as a geographical unit, during the entire period that it endured their wretched misrule; they divvied it up into several sections each of which had a different name.So, back to the so-called west bank'. It's not the West Bank'. It's Judea and Samaria. I REFUSE to use the term West Bank'. In my own mind, every time I see that phrase I mentally substitute Judea and Samaria' (or, if it is a specific location, e.g. Jericho or Bethlehem, Judea', or Samaria', as applicable).The sooner all of us who know our history simply refuse to use this alien terminology, the better. In our conversation, in our comments on web forums, in our talkbacks to online newspaper articles, in our letters to the Editor, in our letters to politicians, in our conversation with friends, colleagues, family, you-name- it: speak of Israel', Judea', Samaria'. Never say Palestine' if you are referring to eretz Israel prior to AD 135. If you are referring to the period 1917-1947, say eretz Israel, Mandatory Palestine'.And if you are speaking about the so-called Palestinians', do not call them Palestinians'. Call them the local Arabs', or local Arab Muslims, in and around Israel'. Where it can be reasonably assumed that they are Muslims, call them that, for it is the thing that matters most of all and is normally the key to their behaviour Muslims' or Arab Muslims', or local Arab Muslims', or at the most Palestinian Arab Muslims'.As for those who live in jihad fortress Gaza, I refer to them as Gazan Arab Muslims', for the few remaining Christians are so small a percentage of the population as to be irrelevant for most practical purposes and are certainly not the people constructing and launching rockets at Israel.And Arab East Jerusalem'??? I know of no such thing.Jerusalem is Jerusalem is Jerusalem, one and indivisible; and within it, there is the Old City', which contains the Temple Mount and the ancient Jewish and Christian Quarters.

I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reaidng what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a good grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so a lot. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your very own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
